Office Visit / Follow-up

I have had nothing but amazing experiences with Mel. Due to my history of health issues, thinking about and trying to conceive has been a very scary process but she’s made my husband and I feel like we’re in the best hands we could possibly be in. Through the emotions that I have experienced, some outside of the office, and some right in front of her, she has been so comforting and resilient in making sure we understand that she’s there for us with whatever decisions we make. She’s really a life changing doctor.
